    Pros

    Bonus are good, stocks are great, no micro management

    Cons

    Everyone is thought as a self contributor and dog eat dog work environment. If you're looking to make friends and work as a team, this may not be for you. However if you enjoy competition with high rewards, then step up and face the challenge.

    Pros

    Within the first few months of acquisition of LSI the new management ferreted out the VP & GMs of poorly performing divisions of LSI and took decisive action to rid itself of non-performing leaders and BUs. These were critically necessary and bold decisions to remove the Executive VPs that were running political fiefdoms draining the company of precious R&D funding

    Cons

    Due to market demands of quarterly growth results, often the focus tends to be short term

    Advice to Management

    Continue to identify and pursue long term growth drivers for the company to gain market leadership in key focus segments. Never rest on past laurels.

    Pros

    Good compensation, nice people willing to help eachother, not just carrying about what they get done and how they look. People are friendly.

    Cons

    Can be a bit dull, but maybe that's me because the building is boring and the cubes are old and dull.

    Pros

    Very successful company, with a hint of the old HP/Agilent culture. Sharp engineers. Although "fabless", still has Fab's, in CO even. Solid focus on quality.

    Cons

    People work very hard and long, as is typical with any companies involved with consumer electronics. With the big companies driving their business comes big pressure for performance price and delivery.

    Advice to Management

    Spread your wealth a little more equitably

  7. It is a pretty good place to work

    Supervisor's need to spend more time with operators and in the Clean Room

    Pros

    Avago purchased LSI Logic Storage group in 2014. LSI front office management, marketing and architecture team was let go, resulting in a relatively flat management organization. That's a plus. OEM customer business remains strong. Engineers are involved in key projects for the biggest names in the server market. New Avago upper management (the CEO) is very engaged and supportive of LSI products and projects. Budgets are realistic; you can purchase what you need to do your job.

    Cons

    Product schedules are very aggressive, but realistically targeted to OEM and industry product releases. Typically driven by Intel futures. Quality management and software metrics are unfortunately driven to excess, often counter productive. Software tool infrastructure is often too restrictive as well. Needs to be replaced with modern tools.

    Advice to Management

    It remains to be seen how LSI benefits will change when merged with Avago benefits in 2015. Eyes are watching.
